The cross-border nature of our economies makes it critical that NIST considers the global context when it determines priorities and conceptualizes approaches. As a result of widespread international use, there are now multiple translations and adaptations of NIST cybersecurity and privacy resources.  This strong foundation is continuing to grow over time as NIST’s impact increases and our opportunities for engagement and collaboration expand.  NIST’s international engagement also includes participation in and engagement with Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) on efforts related to cybersecurity and privacy to promote a standards-based approach to these areas that scale internationally. 

NIST encourages international participation at all stages in the development and evolution of its cybersecurity and privacy programs and resources. We also value conversation with international stakeholders and welcome information about how our resources are being used internationally.
